Holding Plaintiffs' Attorney to Task: Setting a higher bar for recovery of attorney fees

In 2006, the Texas Supreme Court provided a comprehensive set of guidelines requiring limited proof by Plaintiffs' attorneys for recovering attorney fees in cases where attorneys fees are statutorily mandated. The case, Tony Gullo Motors I, L.P. v Chapa, 212 S.W.3d 299 (Tex. 2006), required that claimants segregate their claims into recoverable and non-recoverable claims, and offer evidence that the fees were related to claim covered by the statute mandating attorney fees.
